80m CC CW March 2012 – M0PCB

In January 2012 I hadn’t an antenna for 80m, but as I’ve now got a trap dipole for 80/40m I am able to enter these events.

This time I managed 86 QSOs, of which 85 are valid. There was a slight problem with the serial number for one QSO. This was great fun for an hour and a half, until about 45 minutes in and I noticed my main shack PSU was hot enough to cook eggs. A couple of minutes downtime and a substitute PSU saw me to the end. Nothing quite like a bit of excitement.
